After a silver medal finish at the recent Coeur D’Alene Bill Eisenwinter tournament, the Nelson Selects U14 girls squad continued their solid play to capture gold at the this past weekend’s Terry Walgren tournament at Lakeside pitch.

The squad had a perfect tournament, winning all of their matches with no goals scored against. Defenders Merissa Dawson, Maya Mierau, Kali Horner, Emma Gregorich and Kyra Burkart and goalkeeper Haley Cooke were rock solid in the four shutout victories.

In the first game of the tournament, Nelson soundly defeated Kootenay South by a score of 8-0. Striker Darian Voisard opened up the scoring in the first half and scored again later in the opening half. Lakpa Dietz and Isobel Morley also scored in the first half, taking the team to the break.

In the second half, Bronwyn Sutherland opened up the scoring followed by a pair of goals from Maddie Sternloff and another marker by Dietz.

For their second test, the U14s faced the Creston Blitz and came away with a 4-0 victory. Camille Gebhart led the scoring with one goal in each half, with additional markers added by Voisard and Sternloff.

Sunday morning, the U14s squad faced the Nelson Selects U13 side in a preview of the gold medal game. Dawson opened up the scoring midway through the first half, followed by goals from Amelia Martzke and Sutherland to finish the half. Voisard added a goal in the second half for a 4-0 victory.

In the gold medal match Sunday afternoon, the U14 squad once again faced the Nelson U13 side. In a hard fought match, Voisard opened up the scoring in the first half followed soon with another marker from Burkart. Voisard added another score at the end of the first half to give the U14 squad a 3-0 lead. The second half featured many good battles but no additional goals, securing the gold by a score of 3-0.
